There were bears in the blueberry fields on Lazy Mountain yesterday. Just another sign that winter is on the way. In this part of Alaska, after salmon season, the bears move up into the berry fields trying to pack away enough calories for their winter hibernation. We have a lot of berry bushes on our property, cranberries, raspberries, and rosehips. I've seen black bear tracks in the mud on the trails behind our house, but so far we haven't had them in the yard.
This picture above is a fairly common joke around here.
